With Riot, a user -- typically a government official -- will be able to pull together your life-history; your relationships with other people; and the places where you're most likely to be found.

Raytheon's principal investigator, Brian Urch, details a world map that pinpoints a user's check-ins based on latitude and longitude sometimes posted with photos on social networks. By tracking Nick, one of Raytheon's own employees, Urch reveals that he visits Washington Nationals Park, from where he once posted a photo of him posing with a woman. "We know where Nick's going, we know what Nick looks like," Urch said in the video. "Now we want to try to predict where he may be in the future."
